                  How do you define  homosapiens? .....Memories....which in turn builds up the algorithm that defines us. If 00001111 defines one person, then a variation of 00010111 defines the other. That fault in the algorithm are the defining moments around which each one of us develops a personality to function, to respond and act to a given command.                    If memories are the defining force, pablum is the driving force. World runs on and for vittles and victuals. The variety of grubs and cuisines are the proof.                   If you look at it in a strictly technical sense....unless if electricity wouldn't  have had been invented, an electronic brain wouldn't have been invented. Our viceral force drives us. Confirm it from our great great great great great ........................................................................great ancestors.                   Th…

Ryan - The Rock : 5th in series of Life Is Magical

Ryan – the Rock

This is not a story about a ghost.
Story of Ryan-The Rock alternates between past and present times as our protagonist Ryan reflects back to his childhood and nonce. This book is dedicated to my dad who is the best storyteller ever. My childhood was spent listening to stories that we insisted be repeated over and over again. His unique storytelling style with pauses for yawns would invariably lull us to sleep during bed time. I still am intrigued if yawning was an innuendo for us kids that it’s time to sleep or would my dad actually auto-suggest himself to sleep. 😊 Reading to kids or telling them stories is the best way of learning.

The Confounded Love

The worst nightmare of information age is not, not being updated every second with new dossier of reports of every chapter & verse but it's the befog resulting from it. 
          Endless......faze of confute.....
          Not to patronize but looks like everyone is in a race to be out there unfortunately that is only a tip of iceberg that we see. Majority of unseen part is the question what are we in race against?

Attention Theory
In wanting of attention we internalize what we actually are to what we present to the world consciously.

       The Freudian reasoning behind our huge portion of unconscious  is : in simple terms we relate to what we feel rather than Y are we feeling it. It's too much work besides the blinding weight that feelings bring with them.

Reward Theory          One such misinterpreted & heavily misunderstood term is 'love yourself'. …
